Tarzan's Greatest Adventure picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene (towards the end of the film) where we see Slade's body fall, it falls onto a submerged rock just below the surface of the water and there is a splash of water. In the next shot Tarzan looks down from the cliff above and Slade's body is on a large dry rock, a little distant from where the body originally fell. This scene is on Youtube - Tarzan's Greatest Adventure Part 2.
